Rummy I need full details. Yall got my skin feeling smooth but I still have a few blemishes.

Also you said no SUGARS at all? Dang... I know if I stop eating sugars my stomach would be flatter but I just can't stop. What do you guy substitute for sugar?

My secret ... Acids peels 3 times a year at the doctor's office of course. It's pricy but I do not have 1 line or wrinkle on my face and I am almost 59.
 
Another is I DO clean, tone, moisterize my face day and night, use a weekly face mask, and exfolator.

it tightens your pores.


Printer I thought if you used cold water to wash your face it wouldn't clean out your pores properly. I've been using the exfoliating glove you get from the dollar tree and the kojic acid soap. Am I doing it wrong? also for those that use moisturizers on your face do you guys still wear makeup afterwards? My face would be an oily mess!

Oh no, you need WARM water to clean your face ... gets all the dirt out because it expands your pores. But when you are all done - you seal the deal by patting your face with cold water which close and shrink your pores. Then you PAT your face dry with a fresh towel .. and then you apply your skin serum and moisturizer.

 

I used a GENTLE Exfoliator ... even something cheap like Clearasil is better than something harsh.

 

I used this line mostly http://www.sisley-cosmetics.com/gb-en/skincare-face-exfoliating-care but they are very pricy and based in Paris. Secondly I use http://www.collistar.com/index.asp  - based in Italy but I would guess you can buy this on line - and they are amazingly cheaper. There are a ton of skin care lines out there.

 

Actually the Europeans are more into GOOD SKIN and less makeup .. so since I have move here .. I've become a skin care fanatic! I girls want to look GREAT without it being clear that they are wearing makeup. Natural beauty is the thing.

 

I use the skin serum after washing, give it a minute to absorb. Then I use a good moisturizer. Then I blot my face with a tissue ... THEN I apply my MAC NW43 Powder as foundation. No liquid stuff .. too heavy.

 

Back in 1973 by gfs used to tease me about my skin care routine. Ah ha .. now that we are older - their kids cannot believe we were in the same graduating class.

 

They_look_59 and...  I don't.LOL  TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN!!!

Formula: C1V1 = C2V2 (Concentration 1 x Volume 1 = Concentration 2 x Volume 2)
 
.090=90% LA
.20= 20% Concentration
.50ml= VOlume
.90 x X=.20x50
Solve for X
.90 x X=5
X=5/.90
X=5.55
 
5.55 ml of LA
44.45 ml of lotion
 
convert ml to oz, grams or whatevet
 
You'll need

i agree with rinsing your face with cold water after washing except i let my skin air dry and apply moisturizer while its still damp. leaves the skin dewy and glowy. 

that's my only secret and it has worked like a charm for years.
